In my childhood, Saturday mornings consisted of two things: homemade breakfast and the CMT Hot 20 Countdown. 

My family and I love music videos, which is why we would tune in to the countdown every week. We found it enjoyable to hear our favorite songs accompanied by entertaining, sometimes a tad dramatic, music videos.

Now that the year is coming to an end, it seems only fitting to review the most popular country music videos of 2021. Check to see if your favorite is on the list!

Top Ten Most Watched Country Music Videos of 2021

  • "Settling Down"--Miranda Lambert

Fun Fact: Her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, plays the main male role in the video.

  • "Knowing You"--Kenny Chesney

(Not to brag, but I contributed to this video's success as I was obsessed with this song!)

  • "Next Girl"--Carly Pearce

An all too relatable experience for many.

  • "Chasing After You"--Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris

Another (in-real-life) married couple shares the screen in this hit music video.

  • "One Too Many"--Keith Urban with P!nk

This video has a few fascinating concepts to me...such as the floating couch.

  • "Starting Over"--Chris Stapleton

Let's be honest, this list wouldn't be complete without a Chris Stapleton song on it.

  • "Minimum Wage"--Blake Shelton

Rather simple concept, but it works.

  • "half of my hometown"--Kelsea Ballerini featuring Kenny Chesney

This video is full of emotion and is executed so well.

  • "Famous Friends"--Chris Young and Kane Brown

This was an extremely popular song this year, so I'm not shocked it made this list.

  • "Somebody Like That"--Tenille Arts
